Mainboard with SCSI hostadapter

since my old system broke down today, I'm afraid I need a new one :-(
Anywasy, my good old 68030/25 wasn't quite enough for me anyway :-)

However, looking through the ads and product descriptions, I found
a couple of Asus/Gigabyte mainboards with onboard "2940" SCSI hostadapters.
Now I'm wondering whether this is supprted by Linux? Excuse me if
this is a FAQ... this actually leads me to the 2nd question: is there
some sort of list of available drivers for gfx boards, sound boards,
SCSI hostadapters etc?

Bt it's still quite useful...

Seems so. And the howto stuff seems like a good starting point for all
sorts of questions :-)
